Your generous donation will be matched at 30% if you donate NOW!

Today is GlobalGiving "Matching Day" and your donation will pay for land surveying and registration for a model ethnic Altai village that will serve as a cultural hub for Altai children living in the city of Gorno-Altaisk. AND the project will get an extra 30% matching bonus with your donation.

The matching starts at 9am ET and goes until the matching funds are all allocated, which usually takes not more than half a day. So please donate immediately if you can.

Our project leader, Altai elder Svetlana Katynova, has persuaded the local government to provide the land for the village for free. She has thirty volunteers who will build the village and live in it, but your donation is needed to secure the land.

Thank you hugely for both previous and future donations!!!
